Kings of Convenience released their fourth and most recent studio album ‘Peace or Love’ in June 2021 following a 12-year lapse after releasing their third studio album ‘Declaration of Independence’ in 2009. In a 2019 Facebook post, Øye revealed that the band had attempted to record ‘Peace or Love’ in 2016 and 2017, but were not satisfied with the results, adding that he found himself unable to continue with the record. “I needed distance to be able to be objective about it again,” he continued, “So 2018 was a charging battery year, and now we are planning to try again. But you won’t hear anything more about it (or from us) until it’s actually done. No false promises. Dreams burn but in ashes are gold.”
Øye and Bøe released the album’s lead single ‘Rocky Trail’ in April 2021, followed by the single ‘Fever’ just weeks before the record’s June release.
Kings of Convenience are currently touring South America, and are set to perform concerts in Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Columbia through the rest of November and early December.
